What are anchor links?
Anchor links are essentially a link that directs you to a section of the page, rather than an entirely new page. It’s mostly used when creating a 1-page website. You can still have the menu bar but have all your content on one page. Then when someone clicks on the menu item, i.e. about, services, contact, it scrolls down to that section of the page. It allows your audience to travel throughout your page with ease and get them to the section that’s important for them.
How do I add anchor links?
It’s actually a lot easier than it may sound and really only requires 2 steps (+ repeat), so you got this!
1. First you’ll go to your menu page on WordPress and instead of adding a new page to your menu, you’re going to add a custom link. You’ll fill out two sections: one being your URL. For the URL you will begin with /# and then add your section name. For example: /#services. The second section is Link Text and you’ll add your desired name, like Services. Then just press Add To Menu. Sweet. Done with your first step. Repeat this step for all your desired anchor links.
I told you it was easier than it sounded. Setting up anchor links on you DIVI website can ease your navigation and simplify your site for your audience. Your links will direct your visitors to the section they want without leaving the page. I love anchor links because they give a 1-page website the feeling that it’s complete because it has a full naviagtion bar.
